BPAL: Xiuhtecuhtli

This is the last imp of this rising.

BPAL Description:

Patron of the Aztec pantheon, he is the personification of light within darkness, warmth in the cold, and life in, and after, death. He is a creative and destructive God of Fire and Light, and is appeased only by sacrifice, trial, and the slaughter of his people's enemies. Copal, plumeria and sweet orange and the smoke of South American incense and crushed jungle blooms.

My Notes:

Vial: sweeet orange. And some musky bitterness that's the copal. There's also a floral note I can't qite identify.

Wet: Wow, rich. The oranges in this are nice, not syrupy. and I can *really* pick out the copal, and it's all musky and layered. I like this a lot. It's not one of my typical signature scents, but it's complex and smokey and incenselike and somehow warm and comforting at the same time it's not too lulling.

Drydown: This is so nice. Balanced enough that I can't pick out individual scents. And it smells yummy, smokey-sweet, complex, woodsy, musky.

Dry: This is my number one so far, with Fallen, Whitechapel, Magus, and Undertow as the runners-up. This is going to be an expensive habit, I can already tell.
